Destiny Xur desperation for January 16 to 18

By Alan Ng - Apr 15, 2015

With all the talk on the House of Wolves leak this week, let’s get back to reality as it’s almost time for the next Destiny Xur location on January 16.

Last week was a decent showing, with the Agent of the Nine offering The Last Word exotic Hand Cannon. He also offered the Starfire Protocol for the second week in a row, as well as the Lucky Raspberry chest armor for hunters.

At the moment, it seems like players are desperate for Xur to sell the Gjallarhorn or Ice Breaker. Every week we get the same feedback and complaints as soon as Xur’s inventory is live, with players not happy with anything other than those two weapons.


Given that they are so powerful and can basically take you from bottom to top of the leaderboards, we’re not surprised with the demand.

We do wonder though, it has been months without any sign of the Ice Breaker or Gjallarhorn. Has Bungie decided that they are too powerful and have effectively blocked both weapons from appearing in Xur’s item list?

The general consensus at the moment is that Xur’s items are completely random which is why we had Plan C two times in a row. How would you feel though if Bungie has secretly altered the mechanics though so that Icebreaker, nor Gjallarhorn show up?

Hopefully this won’t be the case and we will see one of them when Xur’s location in the tower is live on Friday. Let us know your thoughts on how Xur’s inventory is offered each week and if you are waiting for both of these weapons too.

Do you think this is the week when we will see either of them? Remember, Xur’s spawn time is 9am UK, 1am Pacific and 4am Eastern Time on Friday January 16.

UPDATE: Wow, would you believe it? Xur is selling the Ice Breaker! Full details on the location and the other items here.

    ICE BREAKER NEAR CRUISCLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Bolsterman

    I scored the ICE BREAKER through a legendary engram which I got on patrol in the cosmodrome… totally random after weeks of waiting!!! must admit i was most pleased…. now its just the ghorn I’m waiting for… The gun itself inst that great, Patience and time is far easier to use, however, its just the regenerating ammo which is awesome… no more running out on the strikes….. makes things alot easier.

    • Jacob Harwood

      good job man

    • TSB

      It was the highest impact and range among snipers but it loses the impact to black hammer now but still keeps the range

  • Jacob Harwood

    does anyone know if xur of hear yet or not

  • rubble2009

    if you dont have the icebreaker like me, invest in the ldr-5001sniper rifle and if you have the ldr-5001 share your thoughts please.

    • Jacob Harwood

      its a good sniper but no unlimited ammo so cant compare

  • timmy z

    That being said lol…I’m lvl 31 almost 32 and if he’s by any chance in hell selling both in 2 &1/2 hrs…I’ll be buying both lmao

  • timmy z

    Most ppl tripping on him selling those are lvl 20 something, tho to keep it limited (if it’s an issue) make it so you can’t buy ice or galla till your light lvl 30 or above…that would help keep it more exclusive and the numbers down. Also force more players to put in the stick time and earn the ability to own those weapons.

    4am eastern not 4pm

  • Andy

    • morduhi levar

  • Billy

    I will want the ice breaker this week please Bungie, although if Random then of course I want to win the lottery.

    • morduhi levar

      oooo morduhahahahahahiiiiiii

    If bungie takes gjallarhorn and ice breaker out of Xur’s inventory, then I am done with this game! I have over 850 hours logged on 3 characters each doing both raids, the weekly, and Nightfall + a whole lot of crucible! These weapons are such useful tools and are part of this game. We should all be entitled to them. We PAID for it! I find it ridiculous that a some players go on the bungie forums and argue against the ghorn and IB being sold by Xur! Most of them already have it (by LUCK). If anything, I would love to be given the opportunity to EARN any one of these weapons through an obstacle of very difficult tasks. Just a thought.

    • morduhi levar

      keep it by luck. keep it exlusive. keep it safe and fun by not making everyone have it.

      • Octus

        its primarily a co op game. If your team has the items it makes you more effective. Thinking that anything in this game makes you unique or rare is not realistic thinking. There are only so many weapons to choose from, its not a randomly generated weapon like borderlands.

        • morduhi levar

          keep it few. keep the hopes up of many. keep the game fun. keep doing what you do well because this is clearly not it

    • Warlock

      Oh grow up. What you think you’re so cool because you have a gun that nobody else has? Who cares if anybody else has the same gun as you?!

      • Octus

        I’m not sure if you read his comment correctly. He doesn’t have the weapons, he wants xur to sell them, or for an opportunity to earn them(besides random loot).
